Urology Procedures

miVIP Takes Care of Diseases in the Urinary System

Should diseases ever infiltrate the urinary system, which is made up of the bladder, kidneys, male reproductive organs and ureters, they have the potential to lead to fatal and damaging results. Luckily, miVIP surgeons specialize in treating urinary system diseases.

Our urology procedures are minimally invasive and can either be done the traditional hands-on way, or you can opt for a da Vinci robotic surgery if you like. A da Vinci prostatectomy allows miVIP surgeons the highest degree of accuracy during surgery, and will have you back on your feet in no time.

miVIP Urological Procedures

Our world class surgeons are just as amazing at performing traditional surgeries as they are robotic surgeries. Some of the most popular non-robotic medical procedures include:

  • Sling Procedures – a mesh string is used to help reinforce the structures of the urinary system while treating urinary incontinence
  • Cystoscopy – surgeons use a scope to examine the inner lining of the urethra and bladder
  • Prostate Biopsies – these types of urology procedures take samples of prostate tissues and test them to see if there are any life-threatening cells
  • Ureteroscopy – here, a scope is used to examine the ureter interior in order to take care of any kidney stones that might be found there
  • Stent Replacements – a mesh tube is replaced in either the ureter or urethra in order to better help kidney stones or urine to flow through

As for robotic procedures, the da Vinci prostatectomy is one of our most common treatment options for removing the prostate.

Know Your Conditions

There are certain urological conditions that might require you to think about looking into miVIP urology procedures, such as:

  • Kidney Stones – tiny deposits formed of minerals and acid salts that exist in the kidneys and can potentially spread to the entire urinary tract
  • Prostate Occlusion – a block in the bladder that’s caused by a harmless growth in the prostate
  • Elevated PSA – a high reading on a PSA test could be an indication that the patient needs a da Vinci prostatectomy since there is a possibility they could have prostate cancer
  • Urethral Stricture – urethra scarring has caused the urine passageway to either become narrowed or blocked
  • Prostate Cancer – 80 percent of men who are over the age of 80 are diagnosed with prostate cancer
  • Abnormal Digital Rectum Exam (abnormal DRE) – abnormal exam results can indicate a blocked rectum, prostate cancer or colorectal cancer
  • Stress Urinary Incontinence – urinary leakage that can happen after certain activities, such as jumping, sneezing and running. Can also be caused by sudden movement

Symptoms of Conditions

Should you notice any of the following symptoms, it might be a sign that you need to discuss urology procedures with a miVIP surgeon:

  • Unexplained weight loss or decreased appetite
  • Lump in the abdominal area
  • Shift in urination, such as incontinence, trouble starting or stopping, pain and weak or interrupted flow
  • Blood in semen or urine
  • Pain in your side or back

A da Vinci prostatectomy could be just what you need to clear up your symptoms as well as your condition.

Depending on which you are more comfortable with and which you qualify for, there are non-surgical and surgical treatment options for prostate cancer and urological conditions. Whether you are in need of a sling procedure, an ureteroscopy or a prostate biopsy, the miVIP team specializes in performing minimally invasive procedures.
